As promised yesterday (for anyone paying attention), today I am offering the first of what I hope will be weekly giveaways for the next several weeks while we’re abroad. I thought it would be fun to make something each week that’s inspired by our location or some activity and offer it here for you to comment on, then I’ll choose one comment at random and send it off (so you’ll also get a neat stamp:) This week we’ve got a sweet little reversible sun hat for a very tiny head (the one for the giveaway is on the left):
It got real sunny all of a sudden back when we were in Paris, and I made up my mind to make Everett at sun hat. I downloaded a free pattern (won’t tell you from where, you’ll see why in a minute), cut it out from two of my favorite fabrics for him, and quickly realized it was going to be way way too small (have you SEEN my giant baby’s head?). So I adjusted the pattern–significantly. Size was the first thing, obviously, but I changed the shape a little bit and made the whole thing completely reversible. I finished Everett’s in time for him to wear it to the parks in London a few times, and since I had already cut out the little one, I decided to sew it up (it’s a quick sew once everything’s cut out) and make it the first ever giveaway. This will probably fit something like newborn-3 or 4 months I think; the circumfirance is 15″.
1. To be eligible for this giveaway, leave a comment on this post (NOT facebook or any other post) that includes your email address (you can use (at) and (dot) if you’re worried about being too public) and tell me who will be wearing this hat if you win it–you don’t have to share a name, just a little something about the little person who needs their neck and eyes shielded from the sun this summer!
2. I will close the comments on Wednesday at 5pm Eastern Standard Time and announce the winner on Thursday.
In order for this to be fun at all, I would like to receive at least 15 comments, so please please please pass this on to anyone who might be interested!
